Kidney Disease
(Data are for the U.S.)

Percent of noninstitutionalized adults with diagnosed kidney disease: 1.7%

Mortality
Number of deaths from nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 48,935
Deaths per 100,000 population: 15.9
Cause of death rank: 9

Diagnosed and undiagnosed diabetes among people aged 20 years or older, United States, 2010

7th leading cause of death (based on diabetes deaths alone not counting contributing conditions such as CVD and hypertension, stroke)
